Editor's note: This column originally ran in November 2008. It's four days after Thanksgiving, and you got through it unscathed. I hope you didn't overdo it on the yams, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and other dishes that cause many Americans to unknowingly eat as much as 3,000 calories in one sitting. The one good thing you can count on is that you'll have an abundance of turkey to use for the next week. And that's a good thing. Turkey is a great source of protein - the only macronutrient broken down and used for building calorie-burning muscle.

In training for any fitness goal, proper nutrition is paramount if you have any hope in coming near said goals. It all begins with what's for breakfast. There is truth to the old adage: breakfast is the most important part of the day. Then why are fewer people eating breakfast? Most people who I consult with say one of two things: "I don't know what to eat," or "I don't have time. " Starting your day off with a well-balanced breakfast is one of the best ways to ensure that your metabolism is running as you get going with your day. Let's take a quick look at some of my favorites that you may want to consider.

With all the attention focused on the multi-billion dollar energy business, I think we need to keep things in a certain perspective. Many people, especially women, are constantly suffering from a lack of energy. Fatigue can be caused by a number of different factors, but for many people, poor nutrition is to blame. Because food is the body's fuel, how well you're able to perform during the day may be directly related to what foods you fill up with during meal and snack time. When it comes to energy levels, foods and drinks that play the biggest role are carbohydrates, protein, and water.

When it comes to learning healthy, cell-supportive nutrition, it can seem really difficult to understand. There are so many books on the subject, it's a wonder we can agree on anything nutrition related. It doesn't need to be complicated, however, I've actually broken it down into three simple rules for nutrition mastery. Really? Really. I've had the opportunity to interview many of the leaders in the field of nutrition for my radio show, and I've learned that what we've been taught about nutrition since childhood has largely failed to improve our nation's health.

Editor's note: Ellen Rowland, The Herald-Mail's North End columnist, underwent bariatric surgery on Feb. 20 to help her lose weight and regain health. So that others might get a clearer picture of the costs and benefits of the procedure, Rowland writes a regular journal describing the process. This is her seventh entry. April was not a good month for me. I was sick most of the time, and I soon realized that my body has not adjusting to the surgery - minor setbacks, but nothing that could not be fixed.

We all need protein, but most Americans eat enough and some eat more than they need. How much protein do we really need?  Every human cell and most fluids in our bodies contain protein. Protein is used to build muscle, to repair cells and to make new cells. It is needed to help fend off disease and assists in transporting molecules throughout the body. The amino acids that make up proteins form enzymes and hormones, each with its own unusal and essential function.  It is important that we not only get enough, but that we also get good quality protein.

In the diet world, there are a few vocabulary words that are generally considered as bad words. All too often, "calorie" is one of them. But that's too bad, because, according to Brittany Smith, clinical dietitian at Meritus Medical Center, calories are simply a measurement of the potential energy of a food. "Most things you're consuming have some amount of calories based on the carbohydrates, proteins and fat. Your body metabolizes calories to get energy," she said. "So it's pretty much like putting gas in your car when you eat. " Calories provide fuel for the body.
